This oval shape wood wall shelf or holder is black. The center is round padded red cut velvet material. On each side of the center there is a wood carved alligator with some paint worn off. The Gators are holding a metal rod in their mouth making a nice holder. The back is black with a silver metal wire for hanging. The overall size is 14 Inches by 7 Inches. The alligators heads and the rod are 1 3/4 Inches higher than the board. The center with material is 5 1/2 Inches diameter. There is some paint rubbed off on top front and some paint missing on the left side under the alligators tail that appears to have faded. This rare wall plaque has a lot of charm. Very sturdy.
